Business Guru Adizes

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 10/02/19

A few days ago I spoke to Dr. Ichak Adizes, a top world expert in the field of management. Adizes says that love is the solution to all of life’s problems, hatred divides us and elicits rejection, while love is the key to success in business and organizations.

KabU Retreat In The Poconos

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 9/26/19

While I was giving live lessons from Italy to thousands of my students around the world, my students were holding a parallel conference to their new students.

The KabU retreat took place in the Poconos, Pennsylvania, and despite the forested holiday destination offering many activities, the students were focused on building internal connections between them.

Two events took place in parallel: The main event for 100 students, and the second event was for dozens of new lecturers in the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Whether a student or a new lecturer, the foundation is the same: practicing the method for human connection above the separating ego, through workshops, discussion circles, dining together, and learning from the sources.

18 Years After ​​9/11 : What Will Really Prevent The Next Disaster?

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 9/11/19

The signs of solidarity, mutual respect and social resilience that we saw after the horrible 9/11 attack in New York, have all disappeared. Today it is painfully clear that people unite only under great duress or trouble. It has been fifteen years since that tragedy, and against the backdrop of global terror, the United States is more frightened than ever of another national disaster. As a result, the government has declared September as a National Preparedness Month, where citizens, business owners and communities are encouraged to prepare for any unexpected crisis or emergency that the US might face. Yet alongside the defense strategies, the one thing that will bring lasting security and balance to our lives is unity. The connection between us has a tremendous power that can prevent any unexpected disaster, and most importantly, to guarantee our good life.

Our groups from 34 countries participated in a special talk we had this morning in preparation for our upcoming Kabbalah Convention in Europe, that will take place in Bulgaria, November 8- 10, 2019.

The theme of the talk was: How to Unite Babylon? Kabbalah Academy Students from the EU gathered with a great concern regarding the future of their continent and presented their questions, so we can begin preparing a strategy for spreading unity in that region. Thank you to everyone who joined us.

The Effect Of Mutual Inclusion

laitman_938.05Question: Several people from our group are going to the convention in Israel. We went through a lot during this time. How can we know that they will convey all our impressions and inspirations?

Answer: I am sure that they will be able to convey it through their inclusion in us. Also, the inspiration that they will receive here will draw all your messages out of them. Everything that you want to convey through them will flow to us.

Kabbalah Congress In Latin America

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 5/19/19

Over the weekend, while Israel and European countries were glued to the Eurovision contest, I was on the other side of the globe – in Monterrey, Mexico. My students and friends from all over the Latin continent gathered in this special region for the World Kabbalah Convention.

Together we learned how to connect above our differences, and the connection was felt everywhere. Many more students and friends from around the world connected virtually, and the density of connected hearts was so powerful that it became truly spiritual. The warm and vibrant nature of Latin America never slowed down as we dined, sang and danced together. I can only praise all the students and give them douze points for unity!

How The Upper World Is Revealed

laitman_938.04Correction can be made only with the help of the Torah, the upper light, which initially filled the common soul and then escaped from it and remained outside as the surrounding light. The light is waiting for the desires to be ready in order to re-enter them according to the law of similarity of properties. Therefore, all corrections are possible only through our connection: physical and mental. We must try to connect until we stop feeling that we are separated by bodies.

If we see bodies, this is a sign of how much we differ from each other. And as soon as we begin to rise above our material bodies, above the internal division, the material world melts and fades away.

This world does not remain: There are only desires connected with each other and striving for ever greater unity and connection. This is how we reveal the upper world instead of the world that is before us now; we begin to see matter from the inside.

Congress: Absorbing Others

laitman_963.8Question: How can we be in touch with all the tens when some of the friends participate in the congress physically and some virtually?

Answer: What is the difference? At the congress there will be random tens. I don’t care where my friends are.

The congress is designed to absorb all the tens, the entire world Kli, to absorb opinions, feelings—everything that is in all our friends, and not that I come along with my ten, sit down at the table with a sign: “This is the Italian group, here is its table.”

What difference does it make if I sit here or at my home in Rome or elsewhere. I have to mix with everyone, to feel their spirit and life as much as possible, and in this measure I will advance.

Our progress depends on how we mutually intermingle with each other; this is our strength—not each of us separately, but jointly!

So, let one part come here and another part remain there, there is no difference; the main thing is that I constantly try to absorb the impressions of all the friends, their love, their feelings, and their aspirations to the goal. I need these forces.

Bnei Baruch Women’s Conference

Dr. Michael LaitmanFrom My Facebook Page Michael Laitman 1/14/19

This weekend, I spoke at our international virtual conference on empowering women in 2019. I said what I always say at every opportunity when the subject comes up: After hundreds of years, women can finally come out from behind the scenes and from behind the modesty that surrounded them, to take over responsibility, management, promotion, and influence in all areas of life.

This coming year is unique in giving women around the world the opportunity to chart a new direction for humanity. All that is required of them, and all of us, is a tiny thing: to rise above the conflicts. Through compromise and connection, you can make the world a warm and loving home.

Dear women, do not miss this opportunity.

Why Is Coca-Cola More Accessible Than Water?

laitman_547.05Question: Why is a can of cold Coca-Cola more accessible than a glass of fresh water?

Answer: Coca-Cola is closer, more affordable, and more available to us than a glass of good pure water because someone profits from it.

Again, the egoism of a person, of a manufacturing company, pushes it to make its product more accessible to all. It cannot earn as much from a glass of water as from a can of Coca-Cola, so Coca-Cola promotes itself to make money from us.

However, if by means of planetary awareness, we realize what is useful for us, we use only good things for us and despise the rest, if we eliminate everything we do not need and use only necessary things, then of course, during the life of one generation, we would be able to raise a generation that would be disgusted with Coca-Cola and all sorts of unhealthy foods, endless sweets, etc.

Then, we will bring up a new, healthy generation without genetic food and without such poisons as Coca-Cola and such.

After all, if egoism disappears from the world, then no one will benefit from making poisonous foods. No one would feel any benefit from it. On the contrary, society should condemn all those companies that act this way. Society must take care to protect all its members from the distribution of poisonous food.

But since we do not love each other, we do not care about each other’s health. As a result, of course, there are those who sell poisons, advertise poisons, and there are those who under the influence of this advertisement begin to buy them, use them—they take this poison.

Our egoism pushes us to all bad things. Until we restrain it, we will drink poisons and will not achieve a healthy life.
